Funding of up to $10,000 may be available to cover lease payments that have or will become due during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Applicants are not required to be in arrears on rent. Eligible businesses and non-profits entities that have prioritized paying rent over other expenses during the COVID-19 Pandemic are encouraged to apply.
Fund awards will be based on actual cost of rent and any applicable charges due under a lease (not to include payments for property taxes and utility payments), as well as the percentage of lost revenue as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Payments will be made directly to a landlord or leasing company to cover payments due under a commercial lease. Applicants are encouraged to talk with their landlords early in the process to confirm their willingness to participate.
The CRAG Program will be administered through the State’s vendor, National Development Council (NDC).
Grant application will be accepted from August 24th to August 31st, 2020. After the application period is closed, NDC will review applications and contact eligible applicants.
